  1. DATA FROM FRENCH-CHINESE CFOSAT SATELLITE ON STREAM FOR SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY

    Date de publication:

    19 Février 2020

    29 October 2018, China launched the French-Chinese CFOSat satellite from its launch base in the Gobi Desert in Inner Mongolia. This first joint science mission between the two nations to study ocean winds and waves therefore recently celebrated its first year in orbit. Its new observations are now available to the world’s scientific community to gain new insights into the ocean surface.

  2. Forecasting weather and understanding climate with CFOSat

    Date de publication:

    29 Octobre 2018

    CFOSat (China-France Oceanography Satellite) was launched today, Monday 29 October, into low Earth orbit. This first joint mission with China is set to deliver data for weather forecasting and long-term climate research. Thierry Amiot, principal investigator for the satellite’s SWIM instrument at CNES, and Lotfi Aouf, a research scientist at the French national weather service Meteo-France, explain.

  4. Launch of French-Chinese CFOSat satellite- CNES and CNRS join forces to study climate change in the world’s oceans

    Date de publication:

    22 Octobre 2018

    The French-Chinese CFOSat satellite will be launched on Monday 29 October atop a Chinese Long March 2C vehicle from the Jiuquan launch base in Inner Mongolia. This science mission to study ocean surface winds and waves is the first joint project pursued under French-Chinese space cooperation. Developed by CNES and the China National Space Administration (CNSA), the satellite will carry two radar instruments: SWIM (Surface Waves Investigation and Monitoring), developed by France, which will survey the length, height and direction of waves; and SCAT (wind SCATterometer), developed by China, which will measure the strength and direction of winds. The two instruments will enable measurements of winds and waves to be acquired simultaneously for the first time. CFOSat will thus characterize the dynamics of waves and how they interact with surface winds more comprehensively than ever before.
